Lauren Bushnell reportedly enjoyed a week-long vacation in Maui with her new beau, Devin Antin, and it appears she's almost ready to make the relationship public.
The formerThe Bachelor bachelorette has been keeping her romance with Devin under wraps in recent weeks, but according to TMZ, their fling is becoming more serious.
Lauren was reportedly in Maui this past weekend as part of a week-long getaway with Devin, a 28-year-old real estate investor from Los Angeles, CA.
In photos obtained by TMZ, Lauren and her new man posed for a romantic sunset photo shoot. It's possible Lauren may be preparing to release such professional photos, although she hasn't posted any pictures of Devin and herself on Instagram yet.
Lauren was wearing an off-the-shoulder, tight sundress with vertical stripes for the photo shoot, while Devin was sporting a New York Yankees hat, black shirt scrunched up to his elbows, jeans rolled up at his calves, and white sneakers.
The couple was all smiles as they posed for pictures in front of bushes and green plants surrounding the beach.
Sources close to Lauren and Devin reportedly said they met two years ago before the aspiring model and former flight attendant competed for Ben Higgins' heart on The Bachelor last year. However, Lauren and Devin were strictly friends at the time.
Once Lauren and Ben publicly called it quits on their engagement and split in May, Lauren allegedly reconnected with Devin and a romance sparked. The sources told TMZ that there was no overlap between Lauren's breakup with Ben and when she began dating Devin.
Last month, Lauren and Devin were spotted at a baseball game together, and in June, the pair attended an NBA basketball game. The couple appears to be having fun and spending a lot of time together.
Lauren moved to the Los-Angeles area after her split from Ben and talked about dating again during a June interview with Us Weekly.
"If something happens, great. If not, then that is how it's supposed to be," Lauren said at the time. "I'm just trying to focus on myself... If something comes from that, great. I'll be so happy. [But] even if something does come, I really want to take things slow. Because obviously on The Bachelor, things don't move slow."
Ben and Lauren got engaged on The Bachelor's 20th season during the show's March 2016 finale. Six months later, the pair decided to star on their own Freeform spinoff, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, which premiered in October of last year and documented their life together in Denver, CO.
